Cox gets the boot

Bobby Cox finally passed John McGraw for the most ejections in baseball history Tuesday night. The Atlanta Braves manager was thrown out by plate umpire Ted Barrett for arguing a called third strike on Chipper Jones to end the fifth inning against the San Francisco Giants. It was the 132nd ejection of Cox's career, eclipsing the mark that McGraw set during his Hall of Fame career. "It's nothing," Cox said of the record. "It just means I've been around a long time, that's all."

If you are keeping score at home, this is 131 more ejections than Gilles Villeneuve had during his racing career.
